“Spark City” challenges Walmart associates to manage various departments where they make inventory, staffing, and customer service decisions, packing months of business processes into hours of game play. The game is modeled on popular mobile resource management games like Clash of Clans. The learner unlocks new levels, tools and information as they progress. The business sim motivates students to put the concepts they learn in Walmart Academy into practice, performing Walmart’s “One Best Way” routine. It provides real time feedback, including customer service, inventory and sales. Game mechanics keep the game fun and engaging while focusing on learning tasks, including mission and story line, hint-system and feedback, level progression and freedom to fail.
